Week 10 FanDuel Values

After a tough week of difficult matchups, we finally get a pretty solid DFS slate.  Lots of good matchups for cheap players, so it should be a bit easier to find some values to play along with the stars.

That said, let’s take a look at some of the best, cheap options for Week 10 DFS.


Will Levis – (Tennessee Titans - $6800)

Will Levis has been named the starter even with Ryan Tannehill seemingly healthy, which works perfectly for this weekend’s matchup.

The Titans face the Buccaneers, a team giving up a ton of points and yards to opposing Quarterbacks.  The Titans themselves have a pretty bad pass defense, and Baker Mayfield can still sling it, so this could be a higher-scoring affair.

Levis came back to earth In Week Nine, throwing for 262 yards and a pick after blowing up Atlanta for four touchdowns.  That second game was a Thursday night game, so we could give him some slack.

Levis has flashed already, so I’m liking this matchup for a bounceback for the rookie QB.

Running Back

Jaylen Warren – Pittsburgh Steelers ($5600)

Continuing on my “play the backup against the Packers” trend, this week we have a little bit better of a backup Running Back: Jaylen Warren.

Warren rushed 11 times for 88 yards and caught three passes for 25 yards against the Titans last Thursday, continuing his relatively quiet, yet consistent fantasy performance.

Warren is a speedier back than Najee Harris, so we may see him break a few big runs against a Packers’ run defense that’s struggled the last few years.

If you are looking for a cheap back with homerun possibility, Warren is probably the best shot this week.

Tyler Allgeier – Atlanta Falcons ($5900)

If you are a Bijan Robinson truther, you’ve probably been pretty pissed off the last few weeks.  But Arthur Smith could care less about your feelings, so Tyler Allgeier has remained pretty fantasy relevant even with one of the top rookie backs in recent history on the team.

Allgeier faces the Arizona Cardinals, who have been pretty bad against the run this season.  Robinson continues to see the doghouse whenever he messes up, and Smith mentioned that Robinson is doing things away from the ball to help the team….whatever that means.

I probably wouldn’t pair Allgeier with other cheap running backs, but he has the opportunity and the skill to have a solid fantasy day against a bad run defense.

Aaron Jones – Green Bay Packers ($6800)

Not a super cheap option, but one that has probably seen a significant drop in price over the season.  Aaron Jones has battled injury and poor offensive play this season but finally looked more like himself last week against the Rams.

Jones rushed 20 times for 73 yards and a touchdown.  He also caught four-of-six targets for 26 yards.  The Packers finally relied on their top back after continuing to force AJ Dillon to no avail.

This week the Packers take on the Steelers, who have been one of the worst defenses against the run (and pass for that matter).  If the Packers rely heavily on their run and short pass game again, Jones could be in line for a monster game.

Wide Receiver

Noah Brown – Houston Texans ($5400)

Noah Brown was a popular pickup this week on waivers after a huge game against the Buccaneers in Week Nine.  After initially being injured, Brown has slowly worked himself into playing time.

And he did so on a completely surprising high powered pass offense.  Now yes there are still growing pains in the Texans’ offense, but CJ Stroud has looked very very good.

This week the Texans face the Bengals, so we could see a potential high scoring game.  Both the Bengals and Texans have struggled to stop the pass, and have the pass offense to hopefully make this exciting.  Figuring all that happens, Brown should be in line for a solid day.

Jahan Dotson – Washington Commanders ($6200)

Another player who is benefitting from his young Quarterback playing well, Jahan Dotson has finally started producing after a bad start to his season.

Dotson has been targeted 18 times over the last two games, catching 12 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns.  That basically doubled his production from the first seven weeks, so maybe he is definitely heating up.

If Howell and Dotson can stay hot, they should put up big numbers yet again against a Seattle team that was just thrashed by the Ravens. Figuring Dotson played well against the Patriots and Eagles, the Seahawks should be in for a bad time.

Chris Godwin – Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($6500)

Chris Godwin hasn’t really blown up this season, so far only scoring one touchdown and eclipsing 100 yards only once.

But after a huge Mike Evans’ game last week led to only two catches for 16 yards, it just feels like this will be a Godwin game. 

The Bucs face the Titans, who I already mentioned above for certain reasons.  Those reasons still stand here, because I expect this one to be a lot of passing.  If the Titans look to slow down Evans, Godwin should have himself a day.

Tight End

Trey McBride – Arizona Cardinals ($5100)

Trey McBride has had a solid year starting in mid-October, catching four passes for 62 yards against the Rams.  Since then, he has had two bad games and one huge game, so take this with a  grain of salt.

McBride was targeted 14 times in Week eight against the Ravens, catching 10 passes for 95 yards and a touchdown.  Last week against Cleveland, the number one pass defense, McBride was held to three catches for 22 yards.

Now it appears as though Kyler Murray is back and should suit up for their matchup against Atlanta.  This is a total shot in the dark, but we may see lots of quick, short passes to keep Murray safe, which should benefit McBride.
